Lunch & Learn


July 25, 2009 - 12:30pm

Shabbat morning services will be immediately followed by a Lunch & Learn led by Mishael Zion entitled, "Companionship, or Death: Stories of Relationships in the Talmud."

The Talmud and Midrash provide a wonderful repository of stories and discussions which provide deep insight into our relationships: between friends, parents and children, women and men, and teachers and students. Often criticizing the social structure or the rabbis themselves, these stories contain deep insights into the way men and women treated eachother – then and now. We will unpack two of these stories and discussion what they meant for audiences then – and now.
Mishael Zion teaches Mahshavah (Jewish Thought) at Yeshivat Hadar. He is a Faculty Fellow at the Skirball Center for Adult Jewish Learning in New York and a student at Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical School. Mishael was born and raised in Jerusalem, where he served on the faculty of the Shalom Hartman Institute and the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies. He is co-author of A Night to Remember: The Haggadah of Contemporary Voices (2007).
